Almería - view from Alcazaba - Murallas de Jayrán - the walls were built to enlarge the city's defences in the 11th century. They run all the way to the 'Cerro de San Cristóbal' — the hill of Saint Christopher.  (photo: Robert Bovington)

The 'Cathedral' is the other principal monument in Almería. It was designed as a place of prayer and of war, when it was built in the sixteenth century. This was because the shores of Almería were continually under attack from Turks and Berbers and so it was designed as a place of refuge as well as worship. It was built in a Gothic style with a Renaissance façade.
